  • Create Quilt Designs for Contemporary Quilts from One Block Pattern

    In my journey as a quilter, I have learned much about design principles. I'm always pleasantly surprised by how you can create unlimited quilt designs from the same blocks or shapes simply by changing the colors or the scale.
